SEC MATERIALS
Certain information provided through this website may have been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) (such materials being referred to as “SEC Materials”). Fairholme does not assume any duty of disclosure beyond that which is imposed by law. The SEC Materials should be read in conjunction with an entity’s periodic and other reports filed with the SEC, including the disclosures therein of certain factors which may affect an entity’s future performance. Individual statements appearing in the SEC Materials are intended to be read in conjunction with and in the context of the complete SEC Materials in which they appear, rather than as stand-alone statements.

Certain statements included in both the SEC Materials and other public disclosures contained on this website are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. The most significant of such factors include, but are not limited to, the following: the performance of financial markets, the investment performance of sponsored investment products and separately managed accounts, general economic conditions, future acquisitions, competitive conditions, and government regulations, including changes in tax rates. Fairholme cautions readers to carefully consider such factors. Further, such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which such statements are made; Fairholme undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements.
